Conditionally passed health inspection. Ordered pork chops. Dry. Difficult to swallow. Service was excellent. Rolls served nice touch but burned.

We arrived here late one night because it was an all-night diner that we assumed, like most diners of this style, would be jumping and flashy and fantastic--with comfort food perfect for any out-of-towner. We couldn't have been more wrong. Upon sitting down we were greeted with cloudy cups and a waiter who was as wet behind the ears as... More

Three of us ate there a couple of Saturdays ago...none of us liked the meal we ordered. Used to be good - used to be packed - not so much anymore.

Even worseOn Easton Ave, down from Rutgers U is this old diner that is so average and ordinary that we will drive to any of the much better diners and other eating spots that abound in that area. The food is not of the best quality and the service I have experienced is even worse- slow and unfriendly.

Impromptu family breakfast for 11 people, seated right away, service and food was great. Jersey diners are awesome! All our food was cooked as ordered. Will definitely visit again.

I went to the Diner this morning had a Turkey Burger, Fries, and coleslaw. The Fries were not greasy and they gave you a huge serving, the Cole Slaw was fresh, and the Turkey Burger was average the Burger needed more seasoning. It was the biggest Turkey Burger I ever seen. I will go there again they have such a... More

One of the gems of our area. When we want a fast home style meal and don't have time to cook, we come here! My personal favorites: burgers, roast turkey platter, ANY salad platter (enough for three meals) and ANY soup!! Easy access from 287, turnpike, Rutgers. Love to come late nights and get a patty melt sandwich with coffee... More
